Takko Fashion, one of the leading quality fashion discounters in Europe, today announces the departure of CEO Tjeerd Jegen who leaves the company on the best of terms to pursue his next career step with the Dutch bike manufacturer Accell Group.

Tjeerd Jegen: “The company as well as the entire Takko Fashion team have grown close to my heart, however I have come to this personal decision as this career change will allow me to work closer to my family in the Netherlands as well as to combine my long-time passion of road bike riding with my career. With its growth strategy, successful omnichannel approach and also benefitting from the increasing demand for both affordable and high quality clothing, Takko Fashion is ideally positioned to continue its growth path in the future. I wish all the best to my colleagues of the management board as well as the entire Takko Fashion team and look forward to hear many success stories from the company over the coming years.”

Dirk Van den Berghe, Chairman of the Takko Fashion Advisory Board: “Tjeerd has successfully led Takko Fashion during its recent transition towards new shareholders. Together with the management team, he has also strategically positioned Takko Fashion in order to continue its profitable growth trajectory towards the future. I thank him for his commitment and contribution to the company and wish him all the best for the future. Many thanks also go to Sebastian, Thomas and Stephan who bring many years of experience and professional successes with Takko Fashion and in the retail sector and who will continue driving forward the company’s strategy as Co-CEOs until a successor will be appointed.”
